Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines transformed a depressing room into a bright and festive nursery for the Purks' baby on the way. The old wall paneling was removed and replaced with light blue painted drywall with white trim.
These fabric hoops are an easy way to add pattern and color – and a healthy dose of country style – to your walls. Fabric swatches can easily be swapped out, making this a timeless and versatile craft.
To make what was a juvenile, childish girl's room more appropriate for a growing tween, its walls were painted a deep shade of violet, album cover-inspired art was hung to create a focal point, vintage lighting was installed on the ceilings and the walls, and women's fashion fabrics were used in upholstered accents. Now the designer-caliber room is as appealing to the tween herself as it is to her young parents.
To mix patterns with stylish success, keep a room's details within a similar color palette. In this girls' bedroom, the beds, wallpaper, pillows and linen use the scheme of blues, pink, green and brown.
Sputnik-inspired chandeliers light up this eclectic teen bedroom. Rustic wood is used on the canopy bed, bookshelves and desk, while shiplap walls create cool dimension. A hanging swing chair adds a playful element to the space.
Oriental Panels and Red Details Create a Bold Master Bedroom Design
Unique was what the homeowner was looking for in the design of her apartment, so designers created a headboard out of rare Oriental panels. Then, they pulled the cherry hues out of the frame with the bold, red details on and around the bed, like the lamp shades and the pillows.
In the hall opposite the stairs, designers paired a bold, funky patterned wallpaper with a rich dresser and gold details. The dresser anchors the design, while the gold details add a bit of pizzaz as well as connecting this space to the design of the rest of the house.
When spending money on the design for nurseries and/or children's rooms, it's okay to splurge on pieces that have longevity. The splurge in this nursery was the leather-upholstered glider, which is durable enough to last and stylish enough to potentially work in a different room.
Whimsical Hygge & West wallpaper sets the scene for this serene girly bedroom. Different shades of lilac and purple are used throughout the space to create a cohesive design without being matchy-matchy. The classic Jenny Lind twin bed is dressed in a variety of patterns, and a hanging chair is a cozy yet playful reading spot.
Children's rooms offer a chance to be playful, more so than in adult spaces such as lounges and living rooms. For a touch of whimsy, a table lamp made of stacked teapots with a woven seagrass shade is at home atop the side table next to Orly's rocker. The playfulness is appropriate for a nursery, and the organic shade fits perfectly with the all-natural aesthetic geared toward adult guests.
